Hi everyone, it’s Amy here today from During Quiet Time. Have you noticed the trend of sea horses in summer clothing for children this year? It hasn’t slipped by me or my daughter who is a big fan. I decided to design this simple skirt with fun seahorse applique for her.

Seahorse Skirt Instructions:
Here is how you make it!
To construct the skirt, cut two panels each measuring about one and a half times the width of your daughter’s waist by the skirt length you desire (adding 2 1/2″ for the casing and hem). In this instance, for a size 10 skirt, the panels were cut 40″ wide x 22″ long.
Sew the side seams of the skirt with panels facing right sides together.
Create the casing by ironing under 1/4″ and then 1″. Stitch leaving an opening into which to thread the 3/4″ wide elastic. Finish the hem by ironing under 1/4″ and then another 1″. Stitch.

Try the skirt on your model and pin the seahorse in an appropriate location. Mark the location with pins.
